Hollywood creates Boy Scout merit badge on copyright

Some of my fondest childhood memories are those of a Cub Scout and Boy Scout hiking, campaign, knot tyeing and learning various skills with my hands that I still use everyday. While there are various social and political issues facing the Scouting movement, it is such a shame that Scouting has come to the point of focusing on such something so far from the Powell ideas of a scout to have a merit badge for Copyright. Sure, Scouts are expected to understand and obey the law. However, I feel that this could be included in the subject matter of a traditional merit badge and more focus paid to activities that get the scout out into the fields and forests.
